Putting on an exhaust..need help.

Well, I just bought a Tsudo catback exhaust "Fireball knock-off," and I was wondering what kind of tools I can use to install it myself. I am kind of new to the tuning scene and want to install components myself. Got a 2005 LX sedan.

I would suggest buying something like PB-Blaster or WD-40 and spray down all the bolts that you will need to take off.

All you basically need is a wrench and metric socket set.

It's like 14mm wrenches and sockets are pretty much it. Dont be surpirised if you break some bolts in the rear section, i have an 04ex and snapped my rear bolts off the section wich hooks to the muffler, exhaust pipe joint. And as far as i know tsudo only makes them for EX but i could be wrong!!!

No the cat is built into the end of the header.

jball63 you're going to need to buy the tanabe extension pipe for that exhaust to fit. There are others ways but buying the extension is probably the easiest.

Actually I got it off octanemotorsports.com. It says that it would fit 01-05 Honda Civic CX DX LX EX. I really didn't know that there is a big diff. on the LX and EX models.
